32 Years of Marriage

Today is an important day for me and Andy. It is our 32nd wedding anniversary! This is not a wedding picture, I do realize, but it is my favorite picture of us from that time period. But to be honest, I would not care to return to that time period. Neither of us are the same people we were in that picture and for that I am thankful. We've both grown through God's grace and I'd never want to return to what we were. I would like to take a moment though, right here on the internet, to praise and thank our gracious God for the husband He gave me, the husband who, in His infinite wisdom, He knew was perfect for me. And you know what? Andy is still the perfect husband for me! Thank you God for 32 years of marriage to a kind and loving husband and for using our marriage as Your instrument to grow us both. I am a blessed woman!

Congratulations to you both!

What a wonderful blessing it is to be more in love with the man you married than the day you married him and to grow in grace and in the Lord together through the years. It is one of life's greatest blessings!

(Love the picture!)
